Flying Eighty-Eights: Riftforge online
The Flying Eighty-Eights,
Elite Ranger Detachment

The first couple of ballistae have been captured, dismantled, and hauled all the way from a forward Caldarian outpost.

Once Ranger command got word of it, they immediately requisitioned them to include a ballista-training course in the Rangers’ curriculum at Mistral Isle.

Taking full advantage of the increased range and armor penetration of the ballistae, the first operational battalion distinguished itself again and again. They earned their nickname during the defensive operations in grid 88, Riftforge’s home turf.

Veteran rangers, however, tell a different story. The battalion’s nickname while training was the “Lying 88s” – a tribute to their impossibly high hit scores on the marksmanship tests. Not content with a lowly 88% hit rate, several ballista teams had the audacity to report a hit score of 300%, claiming the projectile passed through several target dummies.

WW2?

"Flying 88's" sounds suspiciously like "Flak 88" or more specifically, the devastating
Flugabwehrkanone 88 used to devastating effect by the Wehrmacht army during world war 2. I'm not sure if this resemblance is intentional or not, but I certaintly hope they can be used to wreak the same level of havok.

This looks like it might go far.....

This looks like it could eventually make it to the level of runescape.

Hope it goes to our spam

Hope it goes to our spam inbox, because my facebook masses over my emails.

Wait for the game!

Currently, we are running a “private” playtest and although the game is playable, it’s neither very stable, nor balanced. In other words, we still have a TON of work to do.

In a few weeks, we’ll re-assess the state of the game and if it’s stable enough, we’ll start inviting playtesters.

Just wait a few weeks........
